I can live with it on HD cause it's not real bad, but the SD channels it's really hard to watch some of them cause of the bad detail on faces. It could be my set is messed up to or needs calibrated.
I have Geek Squad coming in 5 days to do it. They said the TV has to be running at least 100 hours before they can calibrate it. I can only hope this will help some, but I am not holding my breath.
This year I sold Panasonic VT30 plasma and went for HX850 as well. I have the same perception as you have regarding motion blur. I think LCD LED tech is anywhere regarding slow to mid motion in comparison to plasma. VT30/50 showed bad motion artifacts like false contouring on european models especially on 50hz content, but also on 24p blu-rays. In my experience, 80% of the slow-mid fast motion scenes handles plasma better than LED. But when it comes to mid to ultra fast pans, Panasonic top plasmas 2011/2012 showed additional negative artefacts when compared to the best LCD LEDs. For my eye, LCD LED is still blurred, more or less, but with no additional artefacts. There is no flickering, no noising, no double images, no false contouring..But if I would have the chance to choose again, I would probably choose plasma, because LCD/LED tech is simple unable to show natural motion as plasma and objects like faces even in slow motion appear blurred.
If you had plasma before or you are working with ultra fast IPS monitor ( on your desk ), the only serious competitor to plasma in the motion cleanliness will be OLED.
PS: HX850 - try to activate motionflow setting clear" and cinema mode auto1 ( adds a little SOE, depends if you can live with it ).
